AMPATH farm outside Eldoret.

AMPATH has incorporated nutrition activities into its clinical care since it began anti-retroviral therapy (ART) in 2001. Good nutrition is a significant challenge for many people throughout western Kenya for a number of reasons, including poverty and lack of a diverse dietary intake. AMPATH-UofT representatives have been involved in a number of AMPATH nutrition activities and we are intensifying our involvement. Improving the nutritional status of woman, newborn and child health is essential to achieving the goals of our program.
